Tropical Storm Don moving through southern Caribbean Sea

Tropical Weather Outlook 800 AM EDT Mon Jul 17 2017

Tropical Storm Don continues its approach on the Windward Islands, after forming in the Atlantic Ocean on Monday.

Hurricane hunters found the small area of tropical-storm force winds but the National Hurricane Center says it's not particularly well-organized.

A tropical storm watch remains in effect for St Lucia as a quickly moving tropical storm Don speeds toward the Windward Islands. Don is forecast to remain at tropical storm strength on the SSHWS in the coming days, before gradually weakening and dissipating by 06:00 UTC on Friday July 21. Right now, the storm is located near Barbados and has weakened significantly, and is barely still qualified as a tropical storm. Because Don is easily influenced, "it can not be stressed enough that confidence in the intensity forecast is very low at this time", in the words of the National Hurricane Center. These islands will potentially be hit with heavy rain and flash flooding during this tropical storm. It is now moving west at 17 miles per hour, producing 40 miles per hour sustained wind.

Tropical cyclone names are designated years in advance in a rotating list that this season just happens to contain Don.

The system, named Invest 96L, is now moving westward over the central tropical Atlantic.

National Hurricane Center spokesman Dennis Feltgen confirmed to the Associated Press that the storm name was not a political choice.

Showers and thunderstorms will cruise westward over the southern Caribbean and brush the northern coasts of Venezuela and Colombia during Wednesday and Thursday. It is moving farther north than Don, and most computer model projections take it north of the Caribbean islands.

Its chance of formation is around 20 percent within the next two days, or 30 per cent in the next five days.
